Two Versions
The 1979 gold sovereigns are available in 2 different versions, Uncirculated and Proof

Uncirculated
Sovereigns were not issued in every year, but 1979 is one year for which uncirculated sovereigns are available.
We keep them in stock permanently, our current price on them is as shown below.
They are ideal just as they are, although we can supply a leatherette case for £2, and we can also supply ring and pendant mounts for them, for those who like to wear their coins in jewellery. Sovereign pendants can be worn by men or women, sovereign rings are quite large and are more suitable for larger mens hands.

Proof
Proofs are specially struck coins, with a highly polished mirror finished background, and the raised design in contrasting matt finish. They are issued as limited editions, and are more expensive than the ordinary uncirculated version.
1979 proof sovereigns are contained in a plastic capsule within a Royal Mint leatherette wallet, but were not issued with a certificate in 1979, although those from 1980 onwards were issued with certificate.
They are unnecessarily good for use in jewellery, which would ruin their special finish in a very short space of time, but they are ideal for the person who would prefer to keep them as a memento or family heirloom.

Proof FDC or Selected FDC?
Due to the age of the coins, some of the proof versions may have some toning, or the boxes are not in pristine condition. If you are wanting the very very best, we recommend choosing the 'selected FDC' version. If you choose this version, we will pick the very best coin and packaging we have.

1979 Half Sovereigns
There were no half sovereigns issued in 1979.
Further information about half sovereigns is available on our 1979 Half Sovereigns page of our Tax Free Gold website.

Other 1979 World Gold Coins
We have a small selection of other 1979 world gold coins on our Tax Free Gold website.
